I'm just an ordinary girl doing ordinary stuff.

I just happen to be a single mom in the military.

My kids are part of the military too.

When I deploy, their heart breaks too.

They're strong little guys.

Being their mom is the most humbling experience I've ever had.

Follow the adventures

See if you can keep up with me as I serve my country holding my kids in my arms.

Yup I'm Here

So I've been here for a couple of weeks now.  Korea.  There's a lot to write about and I'm not sure I can express everything tonight.  So I'll talk about what's weighing heavily on my heart right now.  I guess I'll start with a disclaimer:

The people are nice here.
Everyone has been so welcoming and I've been invited to outings and sports and things like that.  I haven't met a rude person yet.

Now onto the heavy part.  I AM SO RESTLESS.  I'm full of angst.  I have so much free time that I can hardly stand it.  So I got busy.  I filled my schedule with so many things to do.  But there's an empty feeling inside me and it's itching at me.  It's probably homesickness and kid-missing.  Yeah, that's probably it.

So what do I do about this?  I don't handle boredom well.  So I signed up for a couple of college classes and am awaiting the start date.  I'm finally really getting my hands dirty in the book I'm writing.  I'm actually feeling it and dissecting it and re-entering the world I've created.  So that should keep me busy.  Plus, I've been doing my daily bible reading and prayers.

But like a dang teething puppy, once I'm done with one thing I'm eagerly awaiting the next chew toy.  So I guess my challenge is this:  Patience.  Sigh.  Patience.

Keep me in your prayers, please.  I need some help here.
